5:17 am
control, this area of clearing. you can see these clouds wrapping up and around that ridge of high pressure. things change, a traufr is going to cool us down tomorrow, even more so as we head into the weekend so if it's been too hot you can likely give your ac a break and some of the east bay cities as we head through looks hike saturday and sunday. both days on the cool side. 5 to 8 degrees cooler friday. take you through your highs today. temperatures at about 93 in concord, 96 in livermore and 85 in san jose. and looks like i have a little background music. 83 on sunday. there is your cooler weather. here's mike, beep, beep, more sound effects for you. >> honk honking. construction going on. 101, though, this is what's going on. a smooth drive, easy flow under the 280/680 interchange a. good flow of traffic. as far as the volume coming through the south bay.
5:18 am
you'll see that there's no major slowing through this area where the camera was. in fact, the rest of the area including el camino moving nicely. we move over to 85, we have construction going on in the northbound side. and the connector off 280 also has the closure in place where there are a lot of options on 28 through the area and avoid 85. a nice flow of traffic. we'll look at foster city side of the san mateo bridge. getting off the bridge you see a smooth drive in the westbound commute direction. there is the eastbound direction, slowing of course. i think i can for that truck. over to the east bay without delay. to the north bay, northbound 101 rarely a problem. southbound toward lincoln avenue. not enough to cause slowing. a smooth drive from 37 all the way down past the curve to what will be a taggy area.
5:19 am
